Green and Brown for a November Wedding?

I am getting married 11/11, and had originally decided on an orange and brown color scheme.  For some reason, orange was the first color that had come to mind when my fi and I started discussing colors, and we stuck to it...  But now that i'm deeper into the planning, i'm having a hard time falling in love with the orange.  I've always LOVED the idea of doing brown and green, but it seems more spring/summer to me.  Would it be weird to do a brown and green wedding in the fall?  Looking for opinions! Thanks!

    I have always seen brown and green as Fall colors...haha! I mean, obviously if you are thinking like a neon or lime green it may be more springy, but with the right shade it could definitely be more fall. I think you could easily do brown and green with orangey accents if you still want to incorporate orange...that would look nice!

    I was thinking Moss Green and Chocolate Brown... That can be fall, right?  And yes!  I thought maybe we could pop some orange in there!

    Love it! My sister just got married this past 11/13/10 & their colors were green and chocolate brown. It was actually a brighter green (i think called Grass?) It was so pretty! That was the day of that first big snow storm --- and the green and brown looked really pretty against the white!!
    Good luck!

    We did orange, brown, and purple (stephjeremywedding.weebly.com).  

    I think moss green and chocolate brown would look great, too!

    Sounds fantastic to me!  I loved getting color inspiration from blogs like "The Perfect Palette" and "Snippet and Ink"... I know I've seen a lot of cool brown and green palettes on there!

    I agree... great for fall.

    My wedding was in October of last year and we did green, orange, and plum. The green we used was kind of a chartreuse color--- somewhere between lime green and moss green. It worked perfectly for fall.

    If you tuck a few burnt orange accents in, your color scheme will scream fall :-)

    I like those colors. But you could have pink with purple polkadots - it's your and FI's wedding so do what works for you both!

    I say pick any colors that you want-- it doesn't matter what season it is. We're getting married in July and our BMs are wearing brown. Go with what you love!
